Metals Creek Commences Diamond Drilling on the Dona Lake Gold Project
Toronto Ontario, November 18, 2020 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Corporation”, TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce the commencement of a minimum 2500 meter diamond drilling program on the Dona Lake Gold Project in the Pickle Lake Gold Camp, Ontario.
This upcoming program is designed to further test for gold mineralization immediately south of the Dona Lake Mine including both the Main and B-Zone mineralized horizons. Deeper drilling will also take place further evaluating the continuation of gold mineralization below the lower most level (455L) of the Dona Lake mine. A part of this deeper drilling will be to test for gold mineralization below hole DL20-03 (See MEK news release September 15, 2020) which intercepted mineralization at 500m vertically below surface.
The Dona Lake Gold Project was optioned from Newmont Corporation (previously Newmont Goldcorp - see news release dated 13 June 2019) and is located in the Pickle Lake Greenstone Belt which is host to several historic mines including the Dona Lake mine, the Central Patricia mine and the Pickle Crow mine. Dona Lake is accessible by an all-weather road southeast from the Town of Pickle Lake. The Property consists of 32 patented and leased mining claims and 35 map staked claims totaling approximately 1,063 hectares and covers the past producing Dona Lake Mine.
Currently there are four known gold bearing oxide iron formations that host gold mineralization on the Dona Lake Gold Project. During compilation work by company personnel, it was determined that the deepest hole found to date was drilled approximately 100m below the mine workings of the Main Zone (455m). This hole (455-2) returned a down hole intercept of 4.36 grams per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au) over 21.08 meters (m) indicating the continuation of mineralization at depth below the bottom level (455 Level) of the Dona Lake Mine Main Zone.
The above mentioned drill intercept is historical in nature and have not been verified by the company. Reported intercept is not true width. At this time there is insufficient data to calculate a true orientation.
A second zone (B Zone), footwall to the Main Zone, was partially drilled off but only saw limited development and test mining and is open at depth with limited drilling along strike. B Zone is defined as a steeply plunging zone with similar style mineralization to that of Main Zone.
Management will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and adjust plans as the situation evolves. Metals Creek thanks our partners and all stakeholders for their understanding and support, and looks forward to commencing field operations with extra measures in place to protect our employees, contractors and communities from transmission of Covid-19 such as Personal Protective Equipment and Physical Distancing.
